Das Bürokratische Selbst des Herrn D. G.


This publication (of which the title translates to: “The Bureaucratic Self of Mister D. G.”) is a self-initiated project exploring the ways in which oneself appears in the bureaucratic context. This is done by stripping documents from various insitutions and governmental offices that I received from all other words apart from my name, which in turn invites the onlooker to take a closer look at the visual language of these pieces of everyday culture. By investigating and reflecting upon these acts of visualisation undertaken by bureaucratic agents which structure the ways in which one appears in a given situation, one may think about how these examples in particular, but also these forms in general organise oneself as a subject either within the bureaucratic life or in opposition to what manifests itself as “the bureaucracy”.
